Well, that was embarrassing. In three games, the Expos could muster one run. To paraphase Bob Uecker, ONE GODDAMN RUN?! At least this was expected - everyone knows the 'Spos couldn't hit a beach ball with a cricket bat. But, the thinking goes, at least the pitching's pretty good. Well, not this weekend. Livan Hernandez was impressive, taking a complete-game loss in the first contest, but Vargas 'n' Armas combined for seven earned runs in six innings total against another offense reminiscent of the deadball era.
It was nice of the Expos to let the Mariners have a little fun for once. By the way, if you ever want to make a Seattle fan cry, just ask him how the Carlos Guillen trade worked out.
